The New York Post's Cindy Adams seems to have info on David Blaine's next stunt indicating that it will in some way be connected to the Atlantic Ocean. Reporting in a piece bearing the title "Ocean's Heaven for Blaine Stunt" she says, "This endurance artist, master magician illusionist does what no other human dead or alive does. Why, is something else. Tall, handsome, intelligent, well-read, he really should get himself a job. Like maybe be an accountant or something. But, anyhow, he makes money (I just saw him dining at the Waverly Inn) with TV specials as he breaks the all-time record of holding his breath underwater or the amount of swords swallowed -- and who the hell even knew there were such world records to break. And why am I telling you this? Because having hung already from a gyroscope, sealed in a tomb over the Thames 44 days, hoisted on a pillar 35 hours someplace, suspended upside down over the Wollman Rink, lain in a 3-ton water tank seven days on 68th and Riverside Drive -- what's left? The ocean. The Pacific isn't terrific, so whatever the thing is he'll attempt, look for it in the Atlantic." Does anyone remember David Swallowing swords? I sure don't.
